When Love Speaks (episode 27)


Jane and Maureen emerged from the flat.  They walked to the gate and stood there.

"thank you very much for paying me
a visit." Jane said.

"it's nothing. at least, I enjoyed my time here" Maureen responded.

"I'm glad you did" Jane said.

"I hope you have arranged your stuff already. we are returning to school this weekend. school resumes next week" Maureen said.

"I have no plan of resuming next week. I will resume the upper week. I still have a lot to do here" Jane responded.

"don't even think of it. we are resuming next week. You of all people know that the penalty for not being in school when semester begins is 1 semester rustication." Jane said.

"I don't think that law will be enforced" Jane said.

"it will o. you better don't even try to break any of the school rule. we are going back to school this weekend" Maureen said.

"okay, okay, I have heard you. we are returning back to school this weekend." Jane responded.

"better" Maureen said.
"let me start leaving"

"okay, thanks once more for visiting me" Jane said.

They hugged each other and Maureen left.


Jewel sat on a sofa in the sitting room, playing video game. He was so engrossed in the game that he didn't realize when a knock sounded on the door. The door opened  and Jane walked in. She went to sit beside Jewel on the sofa.

"Jane!" Jewel called.

"my Jewel, I will miss you. I will miss you a lot." Jane said, sadly.

Jewel stared at her confused. He didn't understand why she was suddenly saying that.

"I'm going back to school this weekend. We are resuming next week. We were given just 2 weeks vacation. I would have spent one more week with you, but you know this private universities and their strict rule. I will be penalized if I'm not in school when school resumes." Jane said.

"we are resuming the upper week. our vacation is also 2 weeks." Jewel responded.

"I will miss you very much, my Jewel. I will miss you so much" Jane said and rest her head on Jewel's shoulder.


Angel sat on a sofa in the sitting room, watching a programme on t.v. A knock sounded on the door. She stood up and went to the door. she opened the door to see Jane.

"Jane!" she called.
"please come in"

Jane entered the sitting room and went to sit on the sofa. Angel sat down beside her.

"Angel, I'm going back to school this weekend." Jane said.

"have you guys resumed already?" Angel asked.

"we are resuming next week. we were given just 2 weeks vacation." Jane said.

"okay, I see. our break is just for 2 weeks also" Angel responded.

"Angel, please take care of my Jewel for me" Jane said.

Angel stared silently at her.  she didn't understand why Jane was saying that to her.

"why are you not saying anything?" Jane asked when Angel didn't respond.

"sure, I will take care of him for you" Angel responded.

"thanks very much" Jane said.

"you are welcome" Angel responded.

"also make sure he doesn't look at any other lady in school" Jane said.

"Jewel won't do that" Angel responded.

"I know. I'm just joking. I trust Jewel" she said, smiling.


The new week came sooner than expected. Jane had already returned to school. Jewel and Angel weren't always seen together, most especially because Jessica was always busy. All Jewel does was to play video game from morning till night. He doesn't even bother reading his book.


Jewel sat in the sitting room, playing video game as usual. A knock sounded on his door.

"come in, the door is open." he said without taking his gaze on the screen.

The door opened and Angel walked in. She walked to the sofa and sat down. Jewel paused the game he was playing, when he saw her.

"Angel, how are you?" Jewel asked.

"Jewel, I'm scared." Angel said, instead.

"why are you scared?" Jewel asked.

"we are resuming next week" Angel responded."

"is that why you are scared?" Jewel asked.

"why won't I be scared? Have you forgotten that you have a case to settle with the school authority" Angel said.

"you don't have to be scared. nothing will happen." Jewel assured her.

The truth was that, he was also scared, that was why he spent most of his time playing video game, to take his mind off his worry.

"I pray so too" Angel responded.

"join me, let's play together" Jewel said.

"I don't know how to play" Angel responded.

"let me teach you" Jewel said.

"no thanks" Angel responded.

Jewel playfully pulled her to sit with him.

"I said, I don't want to" Angel said, smiling.

"you must learn" Jewel said.

"okay, okay" Angel responded.

Jewel gave her the game controller and showed her how to play the game.

"it's a football game" Angel said.

"yes" Jewel responded.

"okay, who am I playing against?" Angel asked.

"you are player against Liverpool. your team are the once on black." Jewel responded.

"okay, let's begin the game" Angel said.

"you have to win o." Jewel said.

"don't worry, I will win. you have to trust me" Angel responded.

"I trust you." Jewel said.

"okay, start the game." Angel said.

Jewel pressed the start button and the game began immediately. it didn't take up to 3 minutes for Angel to concede 4 goals.

"I thought you said you will win?" Jewel asked, laughing.

"I can still win the match. it's not over yet" Angel responded.

"but you are already 4 goals down" Jewel said.

"nothing is impossible" Angel responded.

"okay, I'm watching" Jewel said.

Angel continued the game and within 3 minutes, 2 more goals had been scored.

"it seems I will have to assist you" Jewel said, laughing.

"no, don't assist me. I can still win the game" Angel responded.

"you are already 6 goals down" Jewel said.

"nothing is impossible" Angel responded.

"come on let me assist you. you can't win this game on your own." Jewel said and held her hands. He held her hands from behind, which made her back to rest firmly on his chest.

"now, let's play the game" Jewel said.

Angel immediately lost concentration on the game. Jewel's face was so close to hers, which made her a bit uncomfortable. Their faces were just an inch away from each other. She could feel his heartbeat. She took a side glance at Jewel and realized that his attention was only focused on the game. Jewel suddenly turned to face her, and saw her already staring at him. They stared silently at each other. The room suddenly became too hot, even with the air conditions.

Angel suddenly stood up from her seat.

"I'm leaving. see you later" she said and left without waiting for Jewel's response.

Jewel stared at the door, confused. He wondered what he could have done wrong.


All through that week, Angel never visited Jewel in his house again. All their conversation were done through phone calls and text messages.
